England and Pakistan first clashed in a men’s T20I in Bristol on August 28, 2006. In this quiz, you have to name every player from that match.

At Bristol in 2006, England met Pakistan for the eighth Twenty20 International in history. An England opener scored 53 in 36 balls, but two Pakistani fast bowlers took 3-30 and 2-21 to restrict the hosts to 144-7. No Pakistan batter got a fifty, but an all-rounder blasted a 10-ball 28 and another, an unbeaten seven-ball 17. They won with 13 balls to spare.

Can you name both XIs from that match in four minutes? Remember that these were early days in this format, and there were very few specialists.
